I encourage all of you, especially my Democrat friends, to see the movie, 2016: Obama’s America, which is now showing. It’s by the producer of Schindler’s List, and is written by Dinesh D’Souza. It’s about Obama’s upbringing, and provides great detail on who he is and his political philosophy. This should frighten all of us as we consider who to vote for in November. If you’re on the fence, please go see it. If you support Obama, please go see it. If you support Romney, please go see it. I’m convinced that he’s not even really a Democrat.
The movie demonstrates that Obama is really an anti-colonialist, and he believes that America is the worst colonial empire existing today. This explains his apology tour. This explains his associations with “Reverend” Jeremiah Wright, Bill Ayers, and others of like mind who are unapologetic in their bashing of America. This explains his blocking of drilling for oil in America while at the same time giving billions to South American and Middle Eastern countries to drill there. This explains his refusal to stop Iran from developing a nuclear weapon. This explains his comments to Russian leaders that after he wins the election, he’ll have more “flexibility”. This explains his efforts to get as much of the American economy as possible under government control. This explains his lack of support for Israel, the only beacon of freedom in the Middle East. This explains his ongoing efforts to reduce our nuclear arsenal to levels that would be below many other countries, such as China. This explains his directive to NASA to change its focus from continued exploration to finding a way to connect with Muslims. This explains his own staff’s comments prior to his inauguration that they’d be ready to RULE from day 1.
At every possible opportunity, when faced with the choice between strengthening America and apologizing for her, he has chosen the latter, and weakened our country in the process. Throughout the small part of his life that is actually documented, he surrounded himself with people who filled his mind with the philosophy that America is evil and must not continue to be a superpower. He chose to marry someone who has never even been proud of her country (her own words) until it elected Obama president.
I don’t even think he’s truly a Democrat. As distasteful as I found President Clinton, and as distasteful as I find many in the current leadership within the Democrat party (Reid, Pelosi, Biden and the like), I believe that those people still love this country, even though I disagree with them politically.
With Obama, it’s different. I believe he found that his philosophy shared more in common with the Democrats than Republicans, so that’s where he can be most effective. But this doesn’t make him a Democrat. I think even most Democrats who love their country would be scared to know what he’s really doing. If that makes me a conspiracy theorist, then so be it. Go see the movie.
My impression of him is that he will take whatever position he needs to take on an issue that weakens the country. This goes beyond Obamacare (which weakens our freedom to choose and personal responsibility and strengthens governmental control) and goes beyond his tax policies (wherein he has consistently called for punishing success, which weakens individual ability and desire to success and produce and strengthens the government’s ability to take from us). His position on those issues is symptomatic of his approach that America needs to be brought down to the level of other countries, as opposed to trying to help other countries find the same levels of success that we’ve had here.
At the end of the day, Obama favors government over individualism. The perfect example is his swipe at small business owners – “You didn’t build that. Somebody else made that happen!” When challenged, he and his surrogates claimed that he was talking about building the roads and bridges. Okay, let’s assume that’s true. Who paid for the roads and bridges? Government? NO. Let’s remember that “government” isn’t some entity that generates its own capital by making and selling a product or providing some service that people were willing to pay for. If it were, it would be a for-profit corporation.
But it’s not. The only money the government has, it got from you and me, the people. And a lot of the people are small business owners. Some of them even own BIG businesses, which are even more hated by this administration. So even if he was only talking about building roads and bridges, who really built those? The people!
Obama has spent a great deal of time trying to convince us that we should appreciate the government more. I would suggest that it’s time for him and for his administration to appreciate the people more! Remember, America is great because of the individualism we have. Our personal freedom and responsibility. It’s not great because of governmental control. The entire purpose of the Constitution was to ensure that the government did NOT take control. The Constitution makes clear that the government answers to the people, not the other way around.
Obama has no understanding of that, because he doesn’t share the American experience. 2016: Obama’s America reminds us of that.
It’s time for us to remind Obama of that. Please go see the movie.
